In this exclusive interview, Pete Rock chats about his new mixtape 80 Blocks From Tiffany’s Pt. 2 with Camp Lo and what motivates him to continue putting out records. The legendary producer reveals at least three new projects: a solo album, a full-length collaborative LP with DJ Premier, and a “re-record” of 1992’s Mecca and the Soul Brother with CL Smooth and a live band!
